  • Take your baby to the doctor, this is nothing to mess around with.

  • I'm glad you have a doc appointment. A lot of babies wheeze, though, because they still have gunk in their lungs from being born.

  • You might try a vaporizer today in his room, please sleep on the floor next to him tonight, in case it is RSV, infants are much more likely to suffer from SIDS with RSV.

  • Doctor's office ASAP. My DS was Dx with bronchiolitis when he was 6 months old and it may have been caused by RSV. He wheezed as well. He was on breathing treatments on a nebulizer for over a month.

  • My YDS had RSV, and within 2 days was in a tent in ICU.

    It doesn't necessarily mean baby is sick... my ODS has "I don't like how his air passages are shaped." (from an anesthesiologist) so we have a nebulizer and do breathing treatments whenever he gets congested.

    It COULD be serious, but it also COULD not be. Don't stress, but make sure the Dr takes all the steps s/he can. Definitely listen to heart and lungs and vitals, temp, etc... possible chest xray. If you have insurance, ask for a nebulizer. They're always convenient, whether it's allergies or congestion, for baby or for you.
